@wearsbear, the last trainer I've known for years and didn't take my jewelry off before doing business with her. When we met, I wasn't looking for a horse..so the bling was seen.
Another trainer that was helping me to find a suitable horse, pretty much the same thing. Told me to take the jewelry off before we looked at horses, which I did. Then SHE had a horse she was trying to sell me..a nice $1500 horse which she tried to hard sell for $5500. If I'm going out shopping for horses, all the jewelry comes off. I wear my wedding rings daily..like most women.
@Rob, I agree!! People should look at the PERSON and what their goals are, not sizing them up getting a feel for how much cash they can get out of them. We have people come into the store all the time and trust me, you can never judge a book by it's cover. It's so unfair and rude, to all parties involved.
@joachim, I also believe that during a lesson, both parties need to stay focused on the lesson. Not a problem with that, in fact, it'd be less than professional to discuss anything other than what's being paid for. Silly me, I'd assumed that after becoming her daughters god mother we'd stay in contact. Guess I was wrong.
Sorry everyone, I don't mean to whine..eight years and more money than I've spent on jewelry later, I'm looking for direction and am admitedly, gun shy.
